eating colors for health

 we all know by now that eating clean & organic is always the way to go when possible. processed foods, fast-food & sugars are just not healthy for us.

what is healthy? 
a moderate amount of lean protein, tons of fruits & veggies, a moderate amount of healthy carbs. 
eating clean tends to make us feel better about our bodies, gives us energy & is good for our skin & beauty. add in some exercise & you're living a healthy lifestyle! 

side note: carbs release serotonin so do not cut carbs out of your diet completely. you'll get very sad. it's a fact. there are studies that prove this.

{white = immune support}
examples: cauliflower, mushrooms, garlic, onion, potato, beans
